Zack Snyder Confirms Standalone Superman Movies Still Planned

While Superman's role is probably the most criticized aspect of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, that doesn't mean fans don't still want to see him in another solo film.

In an interview with IGN, Director Zack Snyder expressed interest in dipping back into the Superman solo universe.

"I think if we could get a good script it'd be great to have a standalone Superman movie. I think that would be fun to do."

For Superman actor Henry Cavill, he's also game to do it but understands how much Warner Bros. currently has on their plate.

"I do believe it depends upon the success of this movie. If this goes well, then we can start negotiating with Warner Bros. to develop a standalone Superman, but they've got their plans set out for other stuff and Justice Leagues and various other movies, so it's about finding the time really. It's something I'd be very keen to do.

Snyder confirmed that Batman V Superman is the launch pad for so many new parts of the DC Cinematic Universe, that it has become the main focus of the studio, and will be for some time.

"Part of the reason we haven't announced the stand alone Superman movie at this time was to support some of the events of this film."

Still, I'd love to see a true Man of Steel 2 at some point, as the character has a great deal of history that has yet to make it on screen.
